Merzouga is a small town in southeastern Morocco, about 34 kilometers southeast of Rissani city, about 54 kilometers from Erfoud, and about 48 kilometers from the Algerian western border.
The town is known for its proximity to Erg Chebbi, a Saharian erg, and it is for this reason a part of the itineraries of so many tourists visiting Morocco. Merzouga has the largest natural underground body of water in.
Located in the Sahara Desert in south-eastern Morocco, Merzouga is spectacularly beautiful in its isolation.
Long stretches of soft sand and immense sand dunes stretch in all directions, the horizon only broken by locals or appearance of camels.
The town itself is charmingly small, and can easily be explored on foot, with red sandstone buildings unification easily into the warmness of the desert behind.
Merzouga is particularly extraordinary for the period of sunrise and sunset, when the shining sun turns the town and sand dunes into a kaleidoscope of golds, bronzes and oranges.
The best way to enjoy Merzouga is with a desert tour from Fez or Marrakesh. Imagine a stay in the Moroccan Sahara Desert, riding camel over the sand dunes and sleeping in traditional Berber tents. You watch the beautiful clear sky and sand turning Red and pink as the sun sets. Then the moon rises against an unbelievable background of stars in the cooling, clear and fresh night air. You admire the peace and beauty of the Sahara, loving a delicious Moroccan meal cooked over a timeless camp fire.
